47 posts | 3 read | 1 to read
Newbery Medal winner Katherine Paterson and cut-paper artist Pamela Dalton give fans of all ages even more to be thankful for with Giving Thanks, a special book about gratitude. Katherine Paterson's meditations on what it means to be truly grateful and Pamela Dalton's exquisite cut-paper illustrations are paired with a collection of over 50 graces, poems, and praise songs from a wide range of cultures, religions, and voices. The unique collaboration between these two extraordinary artists flowers in this important and stunningly beautiful reflection on the act of giving thanks.

#FallIntoReading Day 25: There is a lot to be #Grateful for as can be seen in this glorious book reviewed by Fats: “This book was edited by Katherine Paterson, with illustrations by Pamela Dalton. I‘m familiar with some of the passages, poems, and praise hymns included in this collection. Today, I‘m sharing three that I‘ve not read before.” I shared one here. Check this out for more: https://wp.me/pDlzr-gAx

Oh my gosh y'all! @Kayla.Adriena is the kindest, most amazing person! I would have been happy with a book and a candy bar, but she spoiled me rotten! Thankful and grateful are too weak of words to express my gratitude. (And I will treasure the very special handmade bookmark from your passed patient!) Thank you.

Thankful for all my fellow #Littens. Enjoy if you‘re celebrating and please have some pumpkin, pecan, and sweet potato pie for me. Other desserts are good too, but those are my traditional favorites 😄 Unless someone is having banana cream, in which case, heck, throw in a piece of that too. #Thanksgiving

THANK YOU for all the animal photos!!!!! There's not much I can be sure of in this world but I DO know that Litsy will always come running when I ask to see pet photos. Thank you all ? I'm feeling a lot better today minus the fact that mom has decreed today to be a "clean the house until your fingers bleed" day. Probably won't have time to hit the stacks until tonight ??

I want to say how thankful I am for books, the people who write them, the people who read them, & the community of us who take it to the next level & participate in Litsy & #readathon and all the rest.

I had a rough month at work, & needed a weekend like this past one - a chance to disconnect from the demands of work, & a chance to connect with the life-giving magic of reading & sharing.

Thanks to everyone who is along for the ride with me❤️

Besides the obvious (books, Litsy, bookish friends who "get it"), today I'm #thankfulfor a mother-in-law who loves to cook so I don't have to.
Happy Thanksgiving, Littens! ?
